2011 Mar 22: World Water Day 2011

World Water Day: March 22On this World Water Day, the focus is on the growing challenges of delivering water to cities, particularly as local climates are stressed by climate change.  In many parts of the world, the water, climate and urban crises are intertwined.  Climate impacts are a factor driving people to cities, often because of local droughts.  Many cities are feeling the pressures of inadequate water infrastructure, and quite simply not enough water to go around.

We are blessed in Toronto with a secure supply of safe water, so for us this is a day to be grateful, to pause for a moment to consider those who are not so lucky, and to consider what we can do.
